Many Map APIs – Update WordPress Store Locator for Smooth Operations

Friday, January 15th, 2016 

New Year, Resolved Issues — Update WordPress Store Locator

Happy New Year

New Year ’16

Greetings to all — Happy New Year — hope that 2016 is off to a great start. This is a quick but informative message to update WordPress Store Locator to at least v3.85 or later in order to make sure not to experience conflicts with WordPress themes, plugins, or frameworks that also include the Google Maps API in their products, but that also unfortunately load the API on every page.

 

Over the Holidays …

Too many maps can cause problems

Too many maps can cause problems sometimes

It seems that, during approximately the three weeks following Dec 22nd, 2015, there was a quick rise in similar support questions concerning some users’ maps working most times, but sometimes unpredictably. This was caused on a few websites most often by an error in which the Google Maps API was being included mulitple times on one page, leading to unexpected results.

WordPress Store Locator v3.85 and later resolves this problem for pages specific to Store Locator, so once you’ve updated, everything should be fine again.

Store Locator v3.7 — Improvements With Custom Post Types & Page Builders

Monday, September 22nd, 2014 

Custom Post Types / Statuses / Page Builders

WordPress Store Locator Version 3.7As WordPress becomes more advanced, so do the techniques employed by theme & plugin authors.

To keep in step, noticed that custom post types, statuses, and page builders were sometimes causing some users’ maps not to show up at times by preventing the WordPress Store Locator‘s javascript from loading. Store Locator v3.7+ should fully fix that now.

Now, all should be fine — if your map is sometimes not loading, make sure to update! The latest version is now v3.8 as of this writing.

 

Store Locator Addon Notice: Save Template Before Updating Location Pages

Thursday, August 7th, 2014 

Location Pages Users: Save Template File (location-template.php) Before Updating If It’s Been Modified

Location Pages - WordPress Store Locator addonIf you have already made modifications to your ‘location-template.php’ file, save a copy of it to your computer before updating to Location Pages v1.1, released today. It will become ‘location-sample-template.php’ moving forward and will be used as a default template for first-time users.

After this update, your template’s HTML & template shortcode will be stored in the Store Locator’s database, but still modifiable from your Location Pages admin interface.

Great Feedback

Great feedback from our addon users, Early Access members, and regular/non-members in recent months — it has really aided in the development of new addon features and learning what users are looking forward to. Just released WordPress Store Locator v3.5 today, with many base Store Locator and major addon updates as a result.

 

Store Locator v2.13: Fixes Blank Admin Area Experienced By a Select Few

Saturday, November 30th, 2013 

Blank Store Locator Admin Area Fix

The latest version of the WordPress Store Locator (version 2.13) addresses a blank admin area experienced by a select few of you when trying to access your Store Locator’s admin.

Seemed to be caused by having certain functionality unavailable or turned off on your server (cURL or file_get_contents), but should now display the admin properly even with those functions off.

Stay Tuned

More Store Locator updates to come in December, stay tuned — and don’t forget to keep your Store Locator updated!

 

Important: Update To Store Locator v2.x, Which Uses Google Maps API v3!

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013 

Update to Store Locator v2.x!

Update to Store Locator v2.x!

Update to Store Locator v2! Important!

It is mandatory that you update to v2 of the WordPress Store Locator, because it uses Google Maps API v3.

Older Store Locator versions use Google Maps API v2, which is being shut off soon.

Older Versions Will Not Geocode Your Locations Anymore

In fact, Google Geocoding API v2 seems to already be off. No further questions concerning geocoding errors will be answered for those of you using old versions before Store Locator v2 (geocoding: giving your locations latitude & longitude coordinates).

If your plugin folder is ‘wordpress-store-locator-location-finder’ (stopped at v1.2.37):

  1. Deactivate
  2. Rename the folder to ‘store-locator’
  3. Then reactivate the plugin so that you start seeing updates in your WordPress plugins admin panel!

This renaming notification is in your admin panel. You will not lose your locations.

Just like keeping WordPress up-to-date, keeping your Store Locator up-to-date is crucial, due to changes to external services/APIs such as Google Maps.

Announced This Twice So Far, Don’t Hesitate — Update!

  1. When first announcing Store Locator v2
  2. When telling everyone to update to Store Locator v2.1
